Map of the Month 03/2023
During a high-level pledging conference for Yemen in Geneva on 27 February, $1.16 billion were pledged against needs of $4.3 billion. According to the UN, Yemen is the world's worst humanitarian crisis with 21.6 million people, about 2/3 of the population, in need of humanitarian aid. The highest pledges came from the US (444 million), the European Commission (207 million), Germany (129 million) and the UK (107 million). Currently, only 20% of the appeal is covered. Already last year, underfunding has forced aid organisations to massively scale back their services.
